Thought of the Day April 23, 2019 God's mercy

By 10:21 AM

This coming Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday. In preparation, my reflections will be on the Lord's mercy. Here is a quote from St. Faustina's Diary: “‘I am love and Mercy Itself.  There is no misery that could be a match for My mercy, neither will misery exhaust it, because as it is being granted – it increases.  The soul that trusts in My mercy is most fortunate, because I Myself take care of it.’” (1273, page 459)

The mercy of God for us his people cannot be exhausted. No matter the misery we find ourselves in as a result of our own actions or those of others. His mercy is a reflection of his love which is unconditional and perfect. As often as we cry out for his tender mercy, he pours his grace upon us, at least to be able to handle the situation we find ourselves in if not to alleviate it. Jesus, I trust in  your mercy.
